More About Salt Lake City Intermodal Facility

Union Pacific's Salt Lake City Intermodal Terminal is a $90 million state-of-the-art facility designed to support the growing intermodal volume in the Wasatch Front area. Covering more than 240 acres, this expansive facility is capable of handling more than 250,000 annual container lifts, greatly increasing UP's intermodal capacity in the expanding regional market. Strategically located in Salt Lake City, this facility provides convenient highway access to markets throughout Utah and surrounding states.

Construction of this new facility was completed in early 2006. Four loading/unloading tracks were constructed with capacity to handle 60 intermodal double-stack rail cars. Five storage tracks were built to stage up to 90 additional intermodal double-stack rail cars. One track was constructed for the receiving and departure of trains, with direct access to UP's main line, providing connection to all major eastern and western population centers. In addition, the facility employs two straddle cranes to load and unload rail cars and one mobile packer to lift containers. Union Pacific has designed this new facility to expedite operations, with space for future expansion to keep pace with our customers' growth requirements.

Trucks will gain access to the railport via a high-tech, biometric secured Automated Gate System (AGS) entrance.  This technology will allow a trucker to process a container through the gate in 30-90 seconds, as compared to a national average of four minutes.  Built with quality in mind, this clean, safe and well-lit intermodal facility is designed to serve the needs of our diverse and valued customers for years to come.
